Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn I have since had several dilatations of the common bile duct, frequent attacks of Pancreatitis and am still experiencing the same symptoms and pain as I originally had!I now suffer from Chronic Pancreatitis (and I mean suffer!)

Avatar f tn Day 5 abdominal pain began to subside, almost gone now (day 8). Fever is also gone. Day 5 when other symptoms subsiding, excruciating headaches began (8or9/10) unable to move or open eyes, nausea, unresponsive to panadol/neurofen. I get migraines about once/yr, they only last a couple of hrs. This pain lasted 2 days. At its worst, pain was worse than a migraine. Imigran brought pain down to 5, but would worsen again after a few hrs. Only a few hrs per day of complete relief.
Avatar n tn ERCP #1 (4/99) showed two strictures ( no others) in the upper bile ducts, indicating PSC, but the I had no other symptoms. Also, no symptoms again followed that ERCP until 6 weeks ago where I had the same pain attack again. ERCP #2 recently (11/99) dilated the strictures but a sphicterotomy was performed, more for dilation of the strictures,and was successful. My gallbladder was also found to be clear. I have spoken to my doctor about this dysfunction possibly being the root of all evils.
Avatar n tn After the surgery, I got an infection and my bile duct and pancreas duct grew together. I had to have surgery to clean them out. I got severe pancreatitis, was in the hospital a month, almost died several times. When my recent pain began, I had diarrhea for 7 weeks, I had a colon scope, (I had colon cancer about 11 years ago, had half my colon removed), my colon is now o.k., test came out fine, I had a scan of my kidneys to see if I had stone, no stones.
Avatar n tn I am a nurse with no symptoms of any disease. I had a non-contrast CT done to assess a hernia and it came back with "spots" on my liver. Of course this has totally freaked me out. I have an appt. for a contrast CT for a diagnosis. All my liver enzymes are normal and I have NO health problems except the hernia. Does anyone have any similar experience? I know it could be benign hemangiomas but I am worried it could be something worse.
Avatar m tn Hi, 29 y/o male from Australia. I have been struggling with an undiagnosed illness for well over a year now. I have had a ridiculous number of tests which have not shed light on my situation. My symptoms have been progressive and included: Inflammation in nasal passage and thick clear mucus in throat. This went on for a year before other symptoms presented.

544292 tn?1268886268 Andy - Taunton, Somerset, UK Like Andy from Taunton I was given Tramadol on top of the highest dose of Pregabalin and had the same symptoms. I have now come off of Tramadol and am seeking a new pain killer to take over from it. I was so bad at the start of taking both drugs I could not move from a chair or open my eyes without a feeling my brain was swimming, I have had chronic in my elbows for 6 years and have forgotten what a pain free life is.
Avatar n tn Hello i'm a 21yr F & i think i'm about 2 face a long road of tests in order 2 figure out what's wrong with me& i'm after ANY advice or comments because this board is the only place where ppl have similar symptoms as me & i think maybe someone might be able 2 shed some light. *med info* #july '01' i had a pain attack in the pitof my stomach 3am & @ the time thought it must have been a gassy reaction 2 eggs seem i had eggs 4 dinner & i never touch them usually.
Avatar f tn that is going to have any real effect on the symptoms you're having. This is a PHYSICAL problem, not psychological. It makes me wonder if your current Gastroenterologist got his medical degree out of a cereal box, because SOD is a narrowing of the valve that channels bile and pancreatic juices. The main treatment I've seen for that is to widen the valve surgically to prevent the bile from backing up and causing pain.
Avatar f tn but am honestly doubtful and as i live in Australia and stuck in the public system, do not know how long I will need to wait for this procedure again!

Avatar m tn 9 , norm range 10-19 Im losing weight, my food goes straight through me, i have all the hyper symptoms except bulging eyes and goiter. I believe i have suffered with a vit D problem for years, as i have bad knees, i have never been to the doctors about them until recently, but i believe the vit D has given me arthritis in my knees, im seeing a specialist in a month about my knees. But i also believe if you have a Vit D problem for a while it can cause you to develop a thyroid problem?

1393112 tn?1294907542 Dont know if its tummy or what, not vomiting, normal stools, has appetite, but clearly sad and unhappy almost miserable, sticks to me like glue, was not going to feed him just to see if he was going to have a attack, but I didnt, felt sorry for him, he kept looking at the other dogs food and going over to it, so I guess he was hungry so I fed him a little. I thought maybe pancreatitis, but his symptoms dont correlate with the normal symptoms of pancreatitis, no vomiting, no fever, no diahhorea.
Avatar n tn Dear Carol D, It is impossible to shed any light on your symptoms via the Internet. Your symptoms are not suggestive of a gastrointestinal problem. If, however, your symptoms persist then you should yalk to your primary physician and express your concerns regarding the possibility of gastrointestinal disease. Your primary doctor could arrange for stool studies as well as decide if any type of endoscopy is needed.

1916673 tn?1420236870 If overweight, then gaining weight is not a good thing, as it will adversely affect the pancreatitis. It's curious that he's got pancreatitis if he's been on a low-fat diet for 3yrs. The blood result that points directly to it is the amylase, which has been consistently high on both blood results. I would raise this with your vet and please let me know what he suggests (cause, diagnosis and treatment/management advice).
Avatar n tn I was convinced that I had gallstones because the symptoms matched perfectly and the pain comes on after eating greasy or fatty foods. I did a liver cleanse and ordered a gold coin grass tincture to soften up any stones in there, and have been drinking gallons of organic apple juice. The pain comes and goes, but I've been on a diet for the past week to try to keep the pain away, I'm not eating red meats or fatty foods. Mostly all fruits and salads and fresh vegetable and fruit juices.
Avatar m tn 1 million Americans are infected with hepatitis C virus, or HCV, which attacks the liver and leads to inflammation, according to the National Institutes of Health. Most people have no symptoms initially and may not know they have the infection until liver damage shows up decades later during routine medical tests.

Avatar f tn I am shocked at how many people have to put up with these symptoms while doctors scratch their heads. I live in Australia and i am the only person i know who has ever had these symptoms. Even though they are gone i want answers like if it's giardia why did it only present itself in pregnancy then go away after and is it likely to come back whether or not i get pregnant again. The only possible answers i can come up with (if you can call it that) is that a combination of things caused i.
7599415 tn?1392453444 Interferon alfa-2a should be discontinued in patients with persistently elevated triglycerides (e.g., greater than 1000 mg/dL) associated with symptoms of potential pancreatitis, such as abdominal pain, nausea, or vomiting." http://www.drugs.com/dosage/interferon-alfa-2a.html I also googled ursofalk, it is bile acid and can cause nausea and vomiting. I know of no medication to directly lower ALT, so I don't know why his doctor prescribed such medication. It should be stopped.
